I had a discussion with my 8 yr old the other day...
one of those “as you walk along the way” moments.

I asked her what slavery was, and she accurately described it as someone working for someone else for no pay. Yes, someone living off the fruits of someone else’s labor is slavery.

Then we started talking about the percentages - if the slave owner takes all the person’s fruits, that’s slavery.
If he takes 90%, that’s still slavery.
If he takes half, that’s still slavery.

Yep, people who work in this country are slaves to those who don’t.

From the article:

"America’s producers are not bound by manacles or beaten with canes when their “cooperation” is demanded as were many slaves on American plantations. Their enslavement has a kinder face, but if they refuse to obey their master, the consequences are very real. They will first receive legal demands, then court dates, then the confiscation of their property and/or imprisonment will be ordered … all backed by police with guns and with the authority to shoot if necessary."
